M Is For Many Things

12 Sep

Maltesers (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

M was, of course, for Maltesers, as most of my many musers managed to mention in the comments.

There were some other submissions:

  • M&Ms.  A majority of my readers are from across the mighty Atlantic so this was the most popular suggestion.  Meh, as my eldest son might say – a meagre replacement for the greatest sweet (candy) to ever live.
  • Malted Milk Balls: the imitation – almost a mockery – of my magnificent Maltesers.  Meh meh.
  • Meals.  An assumption that makes sense, given my interminable meanderings on foods I most adore – Maltesers, mainly.
  • Motherhood.  Well, yes, maybe I like being a mum; but do I like being a mum as much as I like Maltesers?  It’s a moot point.
  • Muffins.  Mojitos.  Marzipan.  Idiosyncratic Eye knows me well enough to remain with the food theme.  However… Marzipan – yuck yuck yuck!  Mojitos – got an impression it’s booze, so IE doesn’t know me that well yet.  Muffins – good choice.  But English or American…?
  • Money.  Not something I crave, unless it’s to pay for the Maltesers I’ve amassed.
  • Aquatom was right: M’s for many of ’em.  Yes, Tom; I did see what you did there.  Consider me cheesy grinning.
  • Patti suggested it was so easy, I should write another post.  Here it be, Patti.
  • Marabou chocolate was sent to me by comment link.  Many compliments to my new best mate, Viveka, who knows a request for a bribe when she hears one.
  • Commiserations to my ex-best mate, Viveka, who made the mistake of imagining I wouldn’t want to receive many more Maltesers than I presently have stashed in my store room.
  • More congratulations go to Slip Martin (my son’s name for him), who magnificently monitored over many of my posts that there was only one word in the English language that started with M…MALTESERS.  A man of discernment.

Summary: Mention Maltesers and my mood is one of amiable harmony and merriment; and you will be gifted with the honorarium of an over-emmed post.

Many thanks for making me smile.

And drool.

    Mama Mia, look at those malt balls. You wicked girl. posting photos like that for your poor starving fans. I mentioned you today in a less appetizing blog post. Dianne

    M will always be for Maltesers but muffins is good, only the English kind, not the American kind, which can’t hold a candle to their English cousins.

    I was JOKING when I suggested M&M’s!!!
    You can’t take a JOKE???? 😀

    oh what a beautiful picture ..rows of Maltesers just waiting to be devoured….It’s even better when you can nibble the choc coating off first and then suck away at the malty bit..yummy..yummy!

    You’ve set your fan base a twitter with images of the beloved Malteser. I was surprised that someone mentioned money because that is certainly not one of your passions. Money is a necessary thing but it doesn’t drive some of us like it does others. M & M’s have gotten a little crazy over here, they will now slap anything in a coated candy shell.
    T is for Tilly and M is for Malteser’s. That should be in the dictionary complete with pictures.

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! Maltesers!


  11. RoryBore September 12, 2012 at 16:53 #

    saw a Maltesers cake on Pinterest the other day. thought of you.



  12. adinparadise September 12, 2012 at 18:14 #

    I think that Maltesers go with absolutely anything. 🙂

    Meh? If eaten one at a time, perhaps. The idea of M & Ms is to shovel as many in your mouth at one time as will fit, thus allowing the tastes to overwhelm! I am not dainty with my bowl (emphasis on the word “bowl”) of M & Ms…but I admit I have never had a Malteaser. I must see what I can do about that. I’m not opposed to having my own candy taste test!

      • viveka September 13, 2012 at 11:21 #

        Yes, I bought a bar for you yesterday .. have to prove to you that there is more to life then – Maltesers *smile – it lay here all wrapped up waiting on a postal address.

    Tilly I think being in amiable harmony and merriment is an ideal state to be in… it should become contagious! Here… have another Malteser!


  16. Jeff September 12, 2012 at 21:05 #

    Marzipan is gross. I agree with you. Yuck, yuck, yuck! Can I even get Maltesers over here? I really want to try them. At the risk of bringing down your wrath, I like malted milk balls. If Maltesers are better, I must have some!


  17. Patti September 12, 2012 at 21:42 #

    Many thanks for the multiple mentions of Mmmmmms. 🙂

    I am days late and by way of apology I offer

    Malteser Crunchies

    9ozs Digestive Biscuits 4ozs Margarine
    6ozs Milk Chocolate 2 tblsp Golden Syrup
    1 Egg, beaten 5ozs White Chocolate
    8ozs Maltesers (leave 10 for topping)

    Crush biscuits. Melt margarine, milk chocolate and syrup over a low heat. Add beaten egg and simmer for 1 minute. Mix in crushed biscuits and whole Maltesers. Press mixture into a swiss roll tin and leave to cool. Melt white chocolate and spread over biscuit mixture. Crush remaining maltesers and sprinkle over the white chocolate. Leave in the fridge to set. Cut into squares after ½ an hour, but before the mixture has set.

    How far does your Malteser obsession go? Do you own a Maltese dog?? If you do, don’t confuse them and walk the Maltesers and pop the Maltese in your mouth. 😉


  20. The Wanderlust Gene September 13, 2012 at 04:44 #

    i hope enough of your fave Malteezers have arrived to satisfy you for a little while?


  21. eof737 September 14, 2012 at 14:32 #

    You should let the manufacturers know you give them free publicity and an exchange in kind would be appreciated. 😉


    • Tilly Bud - The Laughing Housewife September 15, 2012 at 11:52 #

      My friend once wrote to them. They wrote back to say, ‘Thanks.’ That was it. I was so disappointed, I had to eat a box of Maltesers for comfort 🙂

    You know, I was perfectly happy with Whoppers brand malted milk balls until I stumbled upon your blog. Now I can only eat Maltesers.

    […] Ta Da! Maltesers! Tilly isn’t shy about her love of Maltesers. You can read some of her praise by clicking HERE. […]


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
